If god didnt want me to beat people up, he wouldnt have made me so good at it.
Here’s something to ponder, Rome’s direct takeover of Egypt(Augustus, Marc Antony, Cleopatra, all that fun stuff) is closer to us in terms of time than it was to the building of the pyramids at Giza. Egypt is fucking old.
Just saw how long it was I posted something, yikes ! Back now anyways with more fitness tips, also now working at bannatynes in Birmingham
so i got a job as a fitness instuctor, have started pt’ing, and am duty fitness manager while boss is away on holiday, all this with a month, fuck me is all i can say. on another note, we’ve started a staff powerlifting competition, hit deadlifts first, was an inch away from 130kg, but officaly im down as 120kg, fuck it gonna go straight for 140kg next time
So i had to teach my first class at the gym this week, and it turned out to be an ab attack class. Basicaly they rely on me having better abs than anyone who turns up to the class, i take them through a work out and those little lines on their stomachs become a little more visable. Thankfully no one with a full blown 6 pack turned up so it went as planned.
However it did make me start to watch people doing abs in the gym, and i have to say most of them dont have a fucking clue ! We have an ab crunch machine (totaly unnessessary for your abs but hey ho) and i was watching these two lads use it. They shoved 40kg on (rather heavy for skinny 19 yr olds) and did the first rep right, and then just rocked back and forth at the very bottom for every rep after. :s. Not a fucking clue. Same thing happend again where a guy was doing sit ups on a bench, but hed go half way back down and then straight back up.
When you do ANY exercise, the point where your muscle actualy works most is the intial activation, so for your abs when your back is arched as if your stretching your stomach or yawning. Sure holding the weight in place does a bit but its useless compared to intial activation. When you pick up a weight, put it down before you start the second rep, or your just wasting your time. Form people !
